This week, Elvis Costello and The Roots released their collaborative album, Wise Up Ghost, and since The Roots are Jimmy Fallon's house band, this provides them with plenty of opportunities to let people know. Elvis Costello returned to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to play "Cinco Minutos Con Vos" with The Roots, as well as singer La Marisoul, of La Santa Cecilia. The song is a smooth, bilingual R&B jam with a full string and horn section.


As a special online-only performance, Costello and The Roots also performed the album's title track, "Wise Up Ghost." It's a dense, almost orchestral song, and singing through a megaphone is always cool.

You can get Wise Up Ghost on iTunes or on Amazon.
